Deep Impact

Big news this morning is Deep Impact, an astounding mission to investigate a comet. Tillnet has some good quotes and some great links:

Deep Impact smashes all expectations New Scientist’s post-event coverage of the spectacular Deep Impact strike is a good and useful review. The NASA and Space.com websites are also supurb.

She's right. It's amazing what human beings can do when they put their minds to it -- the websites demonstrate the extent of the achievement.

  1. Now just wait for the hordes of Randroids panning NASA's achievements, solely because it's funded by compulsory taxation.

    Sure, NASA shouldn't be publicly funded.

    But that doesn't dent the magnitude of this event in any way.
